Big Blue Birthday Bash supports the Centennial Scholarship Fund in the UK College of Education. The fund, created in honor of the college’s 100th anniversary, provides students access to scholarships during their journey to make a difference and helps address an ongoing national shortage of professionals in fields such as teaching and health care.

If you cannot attend, please consider making a gift to the scholarship fund. We hope to raise $50,000 to endow the fund, ensuring it will support students in the next century and beyond.

We hope you will join us for this special occasion. Please feel free to contact or 859.562.2584 for more information.
